Lang geleden heb ik op het Internet een duotangle gezien van Joy en Indy Rella, gemaakt door Sandy Hunter. Ik vond dit heel mooi en besloot iets soortgelijks te tekenen in het open stuk tussen Keeko. Daarnaast zie je ook het fijne patroontje El Prado en natuurlijk nog eens Tipple dat ik heel dikwijls gebruik om een “final touch” te geven aan mijn tile.  Op deze Renaissancetile heb ik getekend met een sepia en een zwarte pen. Vervolgens heb ik gekleurd met een wit krijtpotlood, oranje en paarse kleurpotloden. Tenslotte “highlights” geplaatst met een witte gelpen.

A long time ago, I have seen a duotangle of Joy and Indy Rella, made by Sandy Hunter. I did like that very much and decided to use this “double pattern” in one of my future tiles and now I did so. I’ve also chosen for the lovely pattern El Prado and of course again Tipple, which I draw a lot to give a “final touch”. I have worked on this Renaissance tile with sepia and black pens and colored with orange, and purple pencils. For the highlights I’ve used a white chalkpencil and a white gellypen.

    Ria, I really like this one. Your Keeko almost looks like it was knitted.

      Thank you Suzanne. Keeko is a lovely pattern, it was fun to draw and because I have new colorpencils I’d like to use them. I’m glad you like the result.

    I love the way your Keeko looks like fabric I could touch. The Joy + Indy Rella combo is lovely paired with El Prado. What delightful choices put together!

      Thank you Julie, it’s very nice “to meet” regulary by this way.
      In fact every tangle can be transformed into a Hybrid or a duo and so you can create a new tangle by yourself. I saw this combination from Sandy Hunter and loved it immediately but take a look on the site of Simone Menzel. She has made wonderful combo’s. Germans call that “Muster mix”.

    This is such a pretty tile, Ria! I love the colors, the composition, the choice of tangles. And the shading/highlighting on Keeko is extraordinary!

      Thank you very much Michele. All tangles can be mixed together to get a Hybridtangle or a duotangle. Simone Menzel has done this beautiful and showed many examples on her webside: in Germany they say: “Mustermix” . This duo was made for the first time by Sandy Hunter.
      It is a nice challenge to combine different tangles with each other, and also discover a lot of new possibilities, the results can be wonderful!

    I find it hard to avoid Tipple as well, Ria. It certainly makes for a nice embellishment to all kinds of pieces. Very pretty work with lovely colors.

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Gelukkig zijn er ook (heel) veel gemakkelijke tangles waar je éénvoudige en toch ook mooie composities mee kunt maken. Altijd fijn om je commentaar te mogen ontvangen Maddy, warme groetjes.

    What a fantastic tile, Ria!! I love the color you have used, and also love the way Indyrella is floating on the Keeko on the bottom of the tile. Great job!!

    Ria, your tile is beautiful. I see that you used the curved lines for Keeko – great minds think alike. I did that too. I really like the puffy look it gives. The other tangles you used work really well with this. I love the combination of Indy Rella and Joy. I love seeing what you do with the Diva Challenge.
